—-What WIAW is about—-
Celebrating one of the glorious things we all have in common: We all eat!
WIAW is about food and fun! It’s about making new friends, breaking out of a food rut, noting changes in your diet/lifestyle, inspiring yourself & others, embracing fruit & vegetables, nourishing your body with the foods that work for you, finding new ways to eat your favorite foods, and so much more <3
Celebrate blogging. Celebrate Food. Celebrate Individuality.
[Cause over here, we like to party!]
Only one photographed breakfast this week (1), but it’s a great example of healthy eating on the road. I ordered a bowl of oatmeal from room service and requested they swap the milk for water (all I had to do was ask). With peanut butter, brown sugar, & raisins mixed in – a tasty and filling breakfast. Served with fruit on the side!
I had to snap a photo of my huge plate of fruit & veggies (2) from USAT training on Sunday. Those guys really knew their audience with a huge spread of fruit & veggies to choose from, I really piled my plate high. Only dairy-based dressings, but these were so flavorful it didn’t matter!
On our way home from Alabama, we stopped by Soul Vegetarian for a late-night dinner. It literally took us 30 minutes to find the restaurant once we were there, but the food was great! We ordered the Kalebone sandwich (3 – basically roasted seitan) and a vegetable plate (7 – collards, sweet potatoes, mac n cheeze, & cornbread). The Kalebone sandwich was outstanding!! The veggie plate was good, not a ton of flavor, but good. I would definitely go again – I need to try their desserts (they were out).
Our other two dinners were both on-the-fly creations, just looking for what we had in the fridge. This is what happens when we don’t make time for grocery shopping.
Sunday night we made Roasted Pineapple Tofu & Risotto (4), served with a green salad w/ spicy pickled mushrooms, peppers, and a tahini creamy dressing. So happy Kirk was able to fix our oven, so we can bake again!
Finally, our Monday night “we still haven’t gone grocery shopping” creation – sautéed onions & mushroom covered veggie burger, served over cheezy potatoes & spicy sauce. Very random use of leftovers, but very good. :)
Don’t worry – we went to Whole Foods last night and stocked back up food. I hadn’t made a shopping list, so we were creative while gazing at food. We restrained ourselves from buying everything in sight much more than I expected. :)
